Show Me State SHOWDOWN: Trump And Cruz Headed For Recount In Missouri

Donald Trump appears to ahve won Missouri, but Ted Cruz won’t give up without a fight.

According to reports:

“Razor-thin vote margins in Missouri’s Republican and Democratic presidential primaries Tuesday raised the question of a recount.

With all precincts reporting, Republican Donald Trump defeated Ted Cruz by less than one-half of 1 percent, or 1,726 votes, according to the Missouri secretary of state’s office…

Those number don’t include Kansas City absentee and same-day votes that were still uncounted as of Wednesday morning, according to the Kansas City Board of Election Commissioners. However, those figures, which are expected later today, aren’t more than “a few hundred” votes, said a spokesman, and so wouldn’t affect the outcome.

It’s possible that recounts could take place in both races, whoever is declared the unofficial winner. Under Missouri law, a candidate who loses by less than one-half of 1 percent of all votes cast can seek a recount.”
